“Top-notch for a budget Marriott”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2011

As a very picky Marriott Rewards member, I stay at Fairfield Inns when I'm traveling for a specific purpose (not for vacation per se) as they're nice enough for a place to sleep and to grab a quick breakfast. But this Fairfield exceeded expectations. The front desk staff was helpful and knowledgable about the surrounding area, esp. restaurants, shopping and the Riverfront area which simply is not to be missed- and which I WOULD have missed had the staff not mentioned it.

The decor is modern, new and bright, the hotel was very clean and there was nothing whatsoever amiss in the room. There is a refrigerated food section near the front desk in case one needs a snack, and the prices were not confiscatory. I am a light sleeper and the room we had was quiet, even though it overlooked the service entrance/garbage area.

The room rate was a little higher than typical for a Fairfield, it being in Spokane I was a bit surprised by that but maybe that location was prime downtown real estate.

I booked a room in this hotel just to be close to the Spokane Airport for an early morning flight. Imagine my surprise. A spotlessly clean, just renovated hotel. The staff was helpful and outgoing and even let me grab breakfast before the official opening time. Nice. I would certainly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Perkins restaurant handy right next door.

Stayed over Labor-Day Weekend (college move-in season - a combo of business and family) -- though the room was clean and reasonably outfitted, the overall experience fell short of what we'd expect from a Marriott. Indifferent/lackluster front-of-house; no newspaper; under-staffed, under-supplied breakfast room/shift both mornings (a single helper, different each day, and many empty chafing dishes) despite a high capacity (surely they could have anticipated the large number of guests that weekend?).
At one point a large puddle of water on the lobby floor was there so long that I finally put a "construction" cone there myself (it had been sitting unused in a corner) to warn people so they wouldn't slip, because the front desk never responded.
Next time we'll go back to a Courtyard or the Davenport.

This was my first time In Spokane, I stayed one week at another Hotel and one week at the Fairfield inn. My first Impression was that this was a Brand New Hotel, I found it very clean, with nice comfortable rooms, The staff also was very nice and helpful. Breakfasts was just ok it could be more flavorful. Would Stay here Again.

Room Tip: 4th floor rooms are very quiet.

What we mostly care about in a motel is: cleanliness, maintenance, and quietness.
We stayed 1 night mid Sep-2011. Excellent!! Extremely well maintained, spotless, everything is as new, spacious. Good location, 2 minute walk to the beautiful riverfront park. Friendly and helpful staff. I would give them 6 stars if I only could!

Bottom line: Very good choice. Highly recommended, would definitely stay again.

This place is a bit overpriced for Spokane: ($150 incl tax) I stayed there because of the legendary Marriott service quality (Fairfield is a Marriott Brand), but I was quite disappointed this time.

I had planned to get several hours of work done, but ended up on the phone with tech support until 11pm, trying to get the wireless to work. I mentioned this at check-out but received no apology. "I didn't get any other complaints" was the reply. These kinds of things happen and the desk staff are not to blame, but they might have pretended to care.

The breakfast area was nice and clean but very noisy. Staff kept walking through and slamming doors. Many guests were using it as a "staging area," with their luggage cluttering up the aisles.

I will try someplace else next time.

Room Tip: Higher Floor is quieter. North facing is quieter and cooler and have nicer views.
